#30DaysToStrongerKnees Day 23: Box/Bench Jump

Remember, you can pick something very,very low to jump on! This move is here to teach you how to use momentum, how to land safely, and most importantly- how to use your muscles correctly to keep pressure out of your knees!

For this exercise you are going to need a bench, step, or plyo box. Start standing about a foot away from the box, feet hip distance apart, and ready to jump. Sink down and back into your glutes, then jump onto the bench or box landing with a good amount of bend in your knees. When balanced, stand straight up then gently step down to repeat. Remember to squeeze your glutes as you explode into that air as you jump.

Your goal is to do as many as you can with good form. Starting out, I would do 3 sets of 10-15 reps. Don’t over do it, and make sure that you are safe when you come back down!
